One of the most important questions we can ask ourselves is, “Who am I?” And its probably one of the hardest questions to answer. Often we think who we are is based on what we do. For instance, I am a life coach. But that is not who I am, it is what I do. So who am I? Who are you?
I’m me you might say. But who is ‘me’? What is the first question we usually get asked when we meet someone new? Its “what do you do?” But we are not what we do. What we do maybe comes from who we are, and maybe not. Maybe what we do comes from how we’ve been conditioned throughout our lives, and not from the desires and dreams inside our heart. Sometimes they stay there, unfulfilled.
I believe our desires and dreams are a part of who we are, and until we really can answer that question, “Who am I?” those dreams and desires can stay hidden and unrealised. “Who am I” is an identity question. Its about where I get my sense of self, my sense of belonging, my sense of destiny. Its about what I love, about myself, about life, and about what the desires of my heart are.
So I want to ask you today, “Who are you?” I want you to ask yourself the question, “Who am I… really?” Not who others say you are, not who the world says you are, but who you say you are. Because if you don’t know who you are, the world will tell you, and you may not agree with it!
